. >>> senator rand paul wants the federal government to mellow out on marijuana sentencing telling chris wallace he is not a pot advocate but has problems with the current penalties for offenders. >> there are people in jail for 37, 50, 45 years for nonviolent crimes. that's a huge mistake. our prisons are full of nonviolent criminals. i don't want to encourage people to do it, i think it is a bad thing to do, takes away incentive to show up for work and do things you should be doing, i don't think it is a good idea. >> and the president may use more of the hebrew tonight at the white house. he will join the first lady to mark the beginning of passover. >>> and if you read only one thing this morning, have you heard about the hottest, latest thing in the art world? oscar winning actress, sleeping in a clear box at the museum of modern art. it is my must read and leads me to my must ask question. what do you think of this as performance art? it is up on our facebook page. don't forget to like us. and those are my final four picks. now over to you charles???? sir charles' single miles card left hi
